The Las Vegas Raiders’ defense came to play, but their offense couldn’t keep pace and they lost a 20-13 game at the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
Let’s take a look at the key aspects of the game:
What it means:
This was the Raiders’ first loss in three games under interim head coach Antonio Pierce. The Raiders have lost six straight 10 a.m. PT starts. They have two more such games this season,
The Raiders had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds, but the reality was the Raiders were chasing Miami for most of the game. It never truly felt the Raiders were poised to take this victory.
Linebacker Divine Deablo left the game in the first quarter but he returned. In the second quarter, safety Marcus Epps hurt his neck and did not return.
What’s next: The Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday. Kickoff is 1:25 p.m. PT.
